As many of you will now know, the Government are introducing a scheme called 'Tax Free Childcare', which is due to be launched in 2017.
Tax-Free Childcare will be available to around two million households, to help with the cost of childcare.
If you haven't read up on it already, here are the top ten things the Government think you need to know about the scheme.
If you are signed up to a childcare voucher scheme, you will still be able to use this with us. We understand that many voucher schemes will remain open to new entrants until April 2018 and those who are already registered will continue to be able to use their vouchers as long as their employers choose to offer them. If you are unsure of how Tax Free Childcare will affect your vouchers, we recommend you contact your voucher company directly.
Concept Photography have been booked to come in to nursery on Wednesday 23rd November 2016.
As usual we will be putting up a booking sheet for parents to write their child/children’s name on closer to the time, if they wish for them to have their photograph taken.
Once the proofs have been received from Concept, parents will have one week to place an order, for the photos to be ready in time for Christmas.
Children in Need
On Friday 18th November, we will be taking part in raising money for Children Need by wearing spots - so we hope lots of you will take part and send your little ones in to nursery in the dottiest outfits you can manage!
Any donations to this wonderful charity will be much appreciated.
Hello online world...
After more than 20 years in business, The Old Railway House finally has its very own website!
We are so proud that we now have something which will hopefully be seen by prospective parents (and used by current parents alike!).
We have always truly, truly valued, and sincerely appreciated, the many parent recommendations and subsequent referrals we have received over the years and we hope that this continues (and now, we have something that can be shown the people when they are told about us!).
We really tried to capture nursery's sense of fun and to encapsulate our ethos in the styling and tone of the website - so we hope you like it.
The Old Railway Care Conductors
We'll keep you up-to-date with nursery news & events, as well as any important information we feel would be useful for you to know.
